Interesting!

but note
Femoral Condyle - Knee * An asterisk (*) indicates that the HemiCAP® device is considered an Investigational device by the FDA and is currently being evaluated as part of a clinical study at a number of sites in the US.

So finding an md, is going to be limited and NO insurance company springs for research based surgery.. Maybe the company itself will, or the individual.
